Leading open source eCommerce platform Shopware is strengthening its UK business with the opening of a dedicated London office.
Having enabled more than £5bn in gross eCommerce volume, Shopware is the largest eCommerce platform operating in the German market. Since actively entering the UK market in 2016, the team has worked closely with its vast ecosystem of major brands and partner agencies to adapt its software for local requirements.
Having experienced a 500% growth rate over the past 18 months, the new premises will allow Shopware to further establish the UK as a core market.
And to further expand its resources in response to an increased demand, the company’s CEO Stefan Heyne will relocate from Germany to lead the onsite team. This will include highly skilled Sales Specialists, Enterprise Relations Managers and Partner Managers.
Stefan Heyne, CEO of Shopware, said: “The past 18 months have proven that the UK is one of our most important markets. This has been illustrated through an increased demand for Shopware’s solutions, resulting in a requirement for permanent premises in the UK.
We’re now pleased to unveil the plans for our new London office, opening in August 2018, which we believe will help us to become the UK’s leading eCommerce platform.”
